  • Patent number: 11561980
    Abstract: A search apparatus (1) coupled to a database, the apparatus (1) comprising: a processor configured to execute instructions; a memory storing instructions which, when executed by the processor, cause the processor to: search the database for items containing a search term, wherein items containing the search term are matched items; identify fields corresponding to attributes of the matched items; define a range of values for each field; divide the range of values for each field into a plurality of ranged field buckets; distribute the matched items between the ranged field buckets based on attributes of the matched items that are within the range of values for each ranged field bucket; calculate an effectiveness value for each field based on the number of matched items in each of the ranged field buckets; select one or more top fields, each top field having an effectiveness value that is greater than a predetermined effectiveness value; and provide an effectiveness indicator output which is indicative of the ef

  • Publication number: 20220362694
    Abstract: A filter arrangement for threadably securing to a filter head includes a housing having a surrounding wall defining an interior volume, an open mouth providing access to the interior volume and an end opposite of the open mouth. The surrounding wall has an exterior and an interior. A filter media construction is operably held within the interior volume. A sleeve, distinct from the housing, is secured to the exterior of the surrounding wall adjacent to the housing mouth and extending partially along the surrounding wall. The sleeve has an exterior and an interior. The exterior of the sleeve defines mounting threads constructed and arranged to removably mount with the filter head, when the filter arrangement is secured to the filter head. The interior of the sleeve is against the exterior of the surrounding wall. A first seal member is oriented against the sleeve to create a seal with a filter head, when the filter arrangement is secured to the filter head.

  • Patent number: 11499478
    Abstract: An asymmetric inlet particle separator for a gas turbine engine includes an inlet having a first cross-sectional shape, and a duct downstream of the inlet. The duct includes a bend upstream from a splitter, a scavenge branch and an engine airflow branch. The splitter is outside of a line of sight from the inlet and the splitter separates the scavenge branch from the engine airflow branch. The asymmetric inlet particle separator includes an annulus downstream of the engine airflow branch configured to be coupled to the gas turbine engine. The annulus has a second cross-sectional shape, and the engine airflow branch transitions from the first cross-sectional shape to the second cross-sectional shape.

  • Patent number: 11478728
    Abstract: A tank system may be conventional and fixed, or mobile, such as a fracking fluid or other tank trailer. A drain port thereof is fitted with an adapter connecting a snorkel system to drain liquids from near the top of the liquid level in the tank. A snorkel head at the extreme distal end of a tube near the longitudinal center of the tank is suspended by a system of buoys. A flow field controller plate resists formation of vortices near the snorkel head, so it can operate as near the surface as possible, withdrawing the highest grade oil efficiently. At its exit, the proximal end of the tube drains oil through an inner conduit of an adapter at a penetration in the wall of the tank. The adapter forms an annulus around the inner conduit draining tank bottoms directly from the tank.

  • Publication number: 20220302745
    Abstract: Selective discharging of a rechargeable battery pack across a power supply system load is provided, which includes determining occurrence of a condition within the power supply system, the power supply system including a power supply circuit and a backup energy source. The power supply circuit receives main input power, and the backup energy source is operatively coupled to the power supply circuit to supply backup power to the system load when main power input to the power supply circuit is unavailable. Based on determining occurrence of the condition within the power supply system, a controller actively discharges a rechargeable battery pack of the backup energy source. The actively discharging includes controlling the power supply circuit to force discharging of power from the rechargeable battery pack to the power supply system load by suspending the main input power within the system from powering the system load.
